** ''VideoGame/{{Mother 1}}'' has [[spoiler:Giegue's {{Reveal}} that Ninten's great-grandma Maria raised him, and how George stole vital information from his planet that could be used (but, unknown to Giegue, never was) to betray his people. He then pulls the YouFool card and brags that they cannot hope to stand against him. He then lets Ninten, and only Ninten, know that WeCanRuleTogether, and when Ninten refuses, he stops bantering. When they sing Maria's song, he screams at them to stop.]]

* Every ''Franchise/MetalGear'' game from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' onwards loves this trope -- from [[MagnificentBastard Ocelot]] comparing Snake (favorable or not depending on how long you take) to [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Big Boss]], while The Fury will scream insults at the player when he gets hit, etc.

** All the stronghold missions in ''Dark Crusade'' have the leader characters of the factions perform VolleyingInsults with each other as the mission proceeds (except for the Necrons, who are TheVoiceless and so have a human recently converted into a Necron do the bantering for them). Most of the them are pretty generic "PrepareToDie!" "NoYou!" type of things, but some of the insults get incredibly personal; Taldeer and Eliphas for example pull off some epic burns against Captain Thule, while Space Marines vs. Imperial Guard is a rather tragic (for the setting) example of JustFollowingOrders.

* In ''JediAcademyTrilogy'', the enemies have combat taunts. The dark Force-users are more common to spam their comments, as the lesser mooks tend to die much more quickly.

* Nearly all bosses and minibosses in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', as well as normal monsters, will produce some degree of {{Speech Bubble}}s. Some only have a few set responses and others generally prefer VisibleSilence, but some bosses can be extremely talkative. The only exceptions are [[spoiler:ASGORE and "God Flowey,"]] tied to an InterfaceScrew and an UnexpectedGameplayChange respectively.

* Dagoth-Ur in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' spends a lot of time during the FinalBattle explaining why you cannot kill him: he is a god. It turns out, you ''really can't'' kill him [[spoiler:until you destroy the source of his divinity]].

* ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'' gives lines to Idith, Ristill, Hypnosis, Shylphiel, and Khaos during their boss battles. As an inversion, some of the minor bosses like Wind Guardian will only have dialogue from the main character, who usually explains how to deal with their attacks.
